Recognizing the extraordinary economic struggles that confront working people, Darin has vigorously advocated for more than a decade for workers and their unions.
Darin is a seasoned litigator who has successfully managed complex litigation, prevailed before the jury, and argued appeals. Combining sharp analysis with creative problem solving, Darin seeks to identify, in seemingly settled areas of law, unexpected opportunities to advance workers' rights and hold employers accountable for their violations. His practice spans a variety of industries and brings particular expertise in the Railway Labor Act, wage-and-hour law, employee benefits, and representation of unions in bankruptcy reorganizations. A Senior Editor of the leading RLA treatise, he is often invited to speak on the RLA at ABA conferences.
Darin has also partnered extensively with community organizations, such as the D.C. Employment Justice Center, which awarded him its 2013 William W. Anderson Co-Counsel of the Year, and the Public Justice Center, which recognized him as its 2015 Outstanding Partner. He was also selected as a Super Lawyers Rising Star for 2016-18.
Before joining the firm, Darin was a partner at James & Hoffman and in-house counsel to SEIU. He is the author of Bringing Economic Justice Closer to Home: The Legal Viability of Local Minimum Wage Laws Under Home Rule, 39 Colum. J.L. & Soc. Probs. 93 (2005).
